The Rollei INFRARED is perfect for infrared photography, e.g. for photographs with the unmistakable “wood effect”. A highly sensitive, hyper-panchromatically sensitized black-and-white film with a nominal sensitivity of ISO 200/24° to 400/27°.

Rollei INFRARED is a hyperpanchromatic black-and-white negative film with a nominal sensitivity of ISO 200/24° to 400/27° up into the infrared range (650 – 750nm). It is cast on a crystal-clear, synthetic carrier, which makes it very suitable for developing as a slide. This film is characterized by its high resolving power, finest grain, and high edge sharpness. It is easy to handle and can be exposed with or without an infrared filter. Without an infrared filter, Rollei INFRARED acts like an ordinary, high-sensitivity black-and-white film. However, if an infrared filter is used, highly creative results can be achieved.

ROLLEI INFRARED Development Table

Infrared Effect

To take full advantage of the performance of the film, we recommend using an infrared filter to achieve the typical infrared “wood effect”.


Can also be used as slide film

Due to the crystal clear PET carrier, the INFRARED is very well suited as a black and white slide.



Agitation: In the first 60 seconds continuously, then for 5 sec every 30 seconds.
